Religion and Public Memory in Multicultural Societies

Thanks to the support of the Anneliese Maier Research Award from the Humboldt Foundation of Germany, I will be developing a new collaborative project over the next five years, working closely with Prof. Dr. Monique Scheer of the University of Tübingen, as well as colleagues and students at the University of Toronto. We will be exploring how religion is part of the stories that sites of public memory–such as museums, monuments, and virtual spaces–tell of a nation’s past, and in turn, how contemporary conditions of religious diversity shape how and when such stories are told.
